The word "no" has become one of TLM's favourite words (the other being "mine"). It can get really confusing sometimes - I'll ask her whether she wants to have noodles, she'll say "no", then get upset when I put the noodles back in the fridge.
So tonight when she's alternately banging her fork against her bowl and trying to prong a piece of pear, I ask whether she's done eating.
But I take her food away anyhow, because I know better.
"I know you said no", I tell her, "but you really mean yes".
Sound familiar, hmmm?
